of these two suspects. the one with the black cap is tamerlan tsarnaev. he was the one killed by police in a shootout in the town of watertown. this is a suburb of boston. he also died not only of gunshot wounds but apparently of blast wounds. he was wearing some sort of explosive device around his trunk. we heard from the hospital in that area. it was not only gunshot wounds that killed him but he had thermal burns and shrapnel indicating that the bomb went off. the other person the police are looking for, the one that is wearing the white cap, his younger brother, a 19-year-old man named dzhokhar tsarnaev. we heard from our reporter, terry mcsweeney who is saying the police presence is overwhelming, because they are so concerned about how dangerous they consider him. we heard an nbc terrorist consultant refer to him as a tier one terrorist. that being the worst kind of terrorist, referring to him as a bomb-chucker. one of these men were seen lighting and throwing a bomb at police last night during the shootout. there are apparently bombs that have not been detonated that are littering

near the region close to chechnya. a 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev. the surviving suspect is this guy on the right here, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. the two had been living in this country for at least ten years. the fbi released video and pictures of the suspects seen carrying backpacks believed to have contain explosives. the man in the dark cap is dead. the man in the white hat is still at-large >>> we are hearing from an eyewitness in watertown. andrew kitzenberg being evacuated from his home. he said he saw two men taking cover behind an suv firing shots at officer 70-80 yards down the street. he also saw the men using explosives. >> i was about 35, 40 feet away. it looked to resemble a pressure cooker, what i've seen from other pictures online in the last few days. i saw them light this bomb. they threw it toward the officers. it only got maybe 15-20 yards down. it wasn't very close to the officers. it really created a significant decoy. there was smoke that covered our entire street. at that point, one of the shooters ran toward the officers while still engaging in gunfire.

and the subsequent shootout in which the older of the two were killed. his name is tamerlan tsarnaev. he is 26 -- was 26 years old. it's his brother. the man said to be wearing the white hat who got away and has been pursued by authorities. he drove the car jacked suv for a time and then got out. both of the two brothers, we're told, came to the united states roughly a decade ago. they came in when their families sought asylum. their father was a government employee. they have been living in the boston area in cambridge for several years. the younger brother has a massachusetts driver's license. he's a resident of cambridge. the older brother is a legal, permanent resident. the older brother was born in russia. the younger brother, the one they are still trying to find now, dzhokhar tsarnaev was born in kyrgyzstan. his family lives in russia and we're told his father was a public official there at one time. the reason we're told for this extraordinary security in the area of watertown is, of course, because they still don't know where the other of the two brothers, the second bomber is located
